Lightweight tubing instantly adds comfort to your therapy by reducing mask pull and making the tube less noticeable and distracting, making sleeping with CPAP more tolerable and less invasive.
The new UltraLite Max tube from Plastiflex weighs just 105g, making it an incredibly lightweight tube that is 35% lighter than regular tubing, while still providing the same levels of flexibility and durability.
The UltraLite comes in two diameters – the Max which has the standard 19mm diameter (the same as regular CPAP tubes) or a UltraLite Mini Slimline 15mm version, which is even lighter at 95g.
Please note that the Slimline version can only be used with CPAP machines that have a setting to cater for such a tube, such as the Philips Respironics System One REMstar or the ResMed S9. If in doubt, consult your manual or choose the Ultralite Max, which is compatible with all modern CPAP machines.
Both tubes are the standard CPAP tube length of 6' (182cm).

Excellent product and prompt service Review by Peter
Ease of Use Value Quality Website Information ComfortI have had problems with maintaining face seal due to weight and stiffness of the standard 6ft tube provided by NHS. This Ultra-lightweight tube has solved the problem being lighter and more flexible. Very pleased with both the product and the prompt service provided by INTUS.(Posted on 7 January 2018)
Too stiff Review by Andrew
Comfort Ease of Use Value Quality Website InformationThe tube is light as stated but it is more stiff than regular tubing so it did not work for me since i was expecting something very flexible which it was not. The customer service is exceptionally attentive and does not spare effort to solve issues. the delivery was very even though it was regular not expedited(Posted on 3 March 2017)
Looks better than my previous hose which developed a hole Review by LHS
Comfort Ease of Use Value Quality Website InformationLooks better than my previous hose which developed a hole within 6 months. The connectors on the end are also better. Only been using it for a couple of weeks but it is a lot lighter than my previous hose(Posted on 23 February 2017)
Good product - lightweight as described Review by A N Other
Quality Website Information Comfort Ease of Use ValueI am happy with this purchase. It could only be improved with soft rubber hose ends.(Posted on 8 September 2016)
Just the job! Review by Kopite
Quality Website Information Comfort Ease of Use ValueDoes the job. Could do with the option of a smaller length one though as by the time I add my nasal pillow mask tube to it, then it's too long and tangles by my bedside cupboard. The first tubing I had, I was disappointed with because a hole appeared within only 6 months in the clear plastic and I had looked after it very well. This one does just the job.(Posted on 22 July 2016)
INTUS COMMENT: In response to this review, to eliminate the pressure on your mask, and to prevent the tubing from getting tangled, you should try using a CPAP Hose Lift by Arden Innovations. The CPAP Hose Lift can be found via this link - http://www.eu-pap.co.uk/cpap-hose-lift.html. Not only does this product eliminate the weight of the tubing, but it also makes sleeping with your CPAP equipment more comfortable, and prevents your tubing from tangling up around your furniture.
